NetCord, the Foundation of leading cord blood banks has joined the World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA).  By joining WMDA, NetCord will avoid duplication with WMDA activities, be more efficient with the use of volunteers and their time, and require less overhead expenses. The working group’s new mission statement will be, “To support, promote and enhance safety, efficacy and availability of international exchange of cord blood units and to harmonize global practice of cord blood banking and supply.”


As a working group, NetCord will retain its identity and continue to co-publish the NetCord-FACT International Standards for Cord Blood Collection, Banking, and Release for Administration and make accreditation decisions based on those Standards.
